Shuttle's XPC SK83G small form factor system


ON THE SAME day that AMD launched the first Athlon 64, Shuttle

Shuttle's web site claims that the SK83G delivers "64-bit value," but I think that sells the cube a little short. The value is no doubt there, especially considering that the UniChrome Pro integrated graphics doesn't significantly impede 2D application...

A great piece


These are great! I just built one for the first time, and it was a breeze, the quality of construction is great, the CPU cooler is great. I built this system for my friend, and wished I could have kept it for myself. Absolutely recommended!

Shuttle SK83G AMD Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 / Sempron AMD Socket 754 VIA K8M800 VIA UniChrome Pro 3D Graphic Barebone


First SFF system build. Smooth build for parents - I was able to walk my 63 year old non-tech savvy Mom through the process and she put it together! (Highly recommend the experience- great fun) Efficient use of small space. Decent cabling is provided....

Shuttle SK83G AMD Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 / Sempron AMD Socket 754 VIA K8M800 VIA UniChrome Pro 3D Graphic Barebone


wow, I was excited to get this in the mail, bought it on the 25th, arrived on the 27th. Little sucker is nice, quiet and fast. I upgraded from an MSI K2N-Delta ILSR with nForce2. The CS:Source framerates boosted from 68fps to 140fps with 4XFSAA. The...

Wonderful mini computer.


Excellent little machine. Installed a 3000+, leadtek 6600GT, 1 gig Mushkin pc3200. The integrated graphics came in extremely handy when we had a problem with the leadtek card (since resolved). The 6600GT plays most games (including Doom III) quite...

Great system


Quite possibly the easiest computer i've ever built, and its an SFF! This product can support DTR(mobile) chips, with a bios upgrade. The Small 240w power supply is enough to power the following stuff: A64 3200+ DTR (clawhammer 1mb l2) 1gb (2x512mb)...

The best so far


This is my fourth Shuttle build, and easily the best. Construction is magic. I couldn't wait for my SQTA drive to arrive, so I essentially built this one twice, once with an old IDE drive and again with a Segate Baracuda SATA 160 gig. My only regret is...

This Xpc was a lot better than i expected...Im running a 3200+ Clawhammer with the 1mb L2 cache. To let you know, If you use a processor for a DTR Notebook like this one, you will need to go to the AMD website and update the driver for the processor....

Balanced Performance


If you are looking for a more conservatively styled 64-bit Shuttle case, this is it. It has a cool electric-razor microscreen look to the front (G1 style case) which looks much better than the white background used on other G cases. Like the SN85, this...
